    UK Police Check for Employment in Aus

    Great, thanks so much!
  2. Hi guys, I have a potential job offer coming next week but they've asked for a UK police check dated after I left, so I can't use the one from ACRO I had done for the visa. Has anyone else had to get another UK police check once they were in Aus? I've googled and not sure which one to use - ACRO says it's for immigration purposes only? Thanks.

    How to know if you’ve made the right decision?

    I’m mainly missing my family, and my job. I’m a teacher and I miss the school so much. Even small things like my routines and swimming club etc. I’ve joined new clubs over here but it just doesn’t feel the same, like I’m forcing things that I know don’t feel right? I lived in Sydney for two years before, then have just come back. I feel like I changed a lot in the time i was away and maybe now it’s not the right thing for me? Trying to ride it out and not make any rash decisions!
  4. Hey guys... am feeling very homesick at the moment and am just interested to see - did anyone move over here with residency, and then realise soon after that it was the wrong decision for them? I’m still settling back into life in Sydney but constantly missing home and regretting leaving. Has anyone else experienced this, or did you love it straight from the start?
  5. Hi guys, am moving over on my 190 visa to Sydney at the beginning of January and trying to get organised! I'm wondering if anyone has any recent experience getting accredited as a teacher with NESA in NSW? I previously had Conditional Accreditation when I was on a WHV between 2014 and 2015 and did casual teaching for a year. I've now done my Masters since then so have the full 4 years required for Provisional Accreditation. I'm wondering if I will have to reapply for new accreditation, or if I have to change the one I previously had? Also, wondering if anyone was able to use their teaching experience in their home country to prove that they are already a Proficient Teacher? I have over 5 years of full time teaching experience and am thinking if there's a way to submit evidence of this experience so I can move straight up to Proficient once I am re-registered? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    AITSL support (Final Transcript??)

    No, it just needs to say how many overall days you did and the overall ages covered on your course e.g mine say something like completed 110 says supervised teaching practice with the age range 5-11 years. I’m pretty sure AITSL give the criteria it needs to include so if you just copy that and send in your email to your university.

    190 Visa processing time

    Mine too 108 days. If you’ve uploaded everything at the start then any time after 3 months you might hear something.

    You need to apply to AITSL for the skills assessment

    AITSL Teacher skills assessment

    No that won’t be a problem that it’s stated in weeks. My letter from my university stated something like ‘6 weeks, 7 weeks and 10 weeks of placement.’ Just calculate how many days that is and write it on the form when it asks how many days, that’s what I did.
  11. Nope I did everything myself! Thank you, I had the flights booked the same evening haha. Very excited to finally get things moving! Good luck
  12. Don’t worry, I got my grant on 108 days and I didn’t certify anything. Give it another week or so and I’m sure you’ll have your grant too!
  13. No, your documents don’t need to be certified. Just colour copies
